Torah Portion: Miketz
Genesis 41:1
by: Yaacov Fogelman

Yosef's brothers seemed to have dashed his hopes and dreams of family leadership-- last week, we left him abandoned in an Egyptian prison for political prisoners. This week, his dreams are suddenly realized; he acquires vast power over Egypt and saves the whole drought-stricken region. His brothers arrive, abject-- at his mercy for their survival.

But what's wrong with asking?

Torah Portion: Parshas Miketz
M'lochim I, 3:15
by Rabbi Dovid Siegel

This week's haftorah reveals to us the extent one can be driven when plagued with jealousy. The haftorah relates the first court decision the wise Shlomo Hamelech rendered after assuming the mantle of leadership. It tells of two women who shared an apartment and had both given birth at the same time. Unfortunately, misfortune struck one of them and her child died in his sleep.
